lumps under tongue, please help
« on: June 10, 2014, 06:31:00 PM »
I can't stop worrying.  Ive found little lumps under my tongue like on my jaw behind my teeth, 2 on each side in the same places and ive got one behind my two front bottom teeth near the bit that attaches your tongue, I can move it around with my tongue. Its like a quater of a pea size. Ive no idea if its alway been there, im so scared that its mouth cancer, I'm only 20 and I dont wamt to die. I have dentist check ups every 6 months and he has never seen anything abnormal, ive noticed these lumps for about 3 months. Im annoying everyone around me by keep mentioning it, my mum says she has lumps too and its normal but im terrified, im too scared to go to my doctor and be told I'm dying. I cannot calm down. I hate anxiety

Do you get tonsil stones? I get these same bumps too, I think they are normal atleast for me, I've had them for years.

Hi...
It sounds like you are talking about your submandibular duct...it's where your saliva comes from. I have these little small pea sized lumps too and can also move them with my tongue...been there my whole life. Nothin to worry about!

Yes I used to get them a lot but then I had my tonsils taken out! Everyone ive spoken to tells me the bumps are normal, why can't I just believe them?! Its like my brain just won't let me forget about it  >:(

Thankyou everyone for answering my post!

If they're on your jawbone, they're probably tori. Very common and harmless.

Sounds like submandibular duct. This is where your saliva comes from and sometimes they can get blocked. I've got one that always gets blocked but completely fine.

Yes I can feel them with my tongue, I can even move them around a bit. They've been there my whole life...I literally feel them every day and don't even think about it.
